'Looney Tunes Cartoons': Meet the voices behind your favorite characters on the HBO Max show
The 'Looney Tunes' gang is timeless. They have managed to live on for generations and have entertained everyone with their bizarre antics and catchphrases, be it Bugs Bunny's "What's up doc?", Elmo hunting Bugs during rabbit season and calling out "Wabbit, wabbit!", and adorable Tweety, who has also shades of sheer evil when it comes to taunting Sylvester, the cat. All in all, 'Looney Tunes' brought together the craziest bunch of animals and humans and made our childhood memorable.
